Selma Blair has released a statement regarding the outburst that caused the actress to be removed from an airplane on a stretcher, calling the incident a "big mistake."
The actress was returning to Los Angeles from a trip to Mexico with her 4-year-old son over the weekend and was met by paramedics as soon as the plane arrived, People magazine reported
"It looks like she had taken a combination of prescription medication with alcohol," an unnamed official told the magazine. "We don't know what sort of prescription medications."
Witnesses told TMZ
that Blair was seated in first class and drinking wine during the Delta flight when she started crying and saying things like, "He burns my private parts. He won't let me eat or drink. He beats me. He's going to kill me."
The gossip site said the pilot radioed ahead and told the tower that a passenger was mixing alcohol and medicine. Blair was reportedly removed from the plane on a stretcher and taken to an area hospital.
"I made a big mistake yesterday," Blair said in an exclusive statement to Vanity Fair
. "After a lovely trip with my son and his Dad, I mixed alcohol with medication, and that caused me to black out and led me to say and do things that I deeply regret. My son was with his Dad asleep with his headphones on, so there is that saving grace. I take this very seriously, and I apologize to all of the passengers and crew that I disturbed and am thankful to all of the people who helped me in the aftermath. I am a flawed human being who makes mistakes and am filled with shame over this incident. I am truly very sorry."
Blair spent the weekend vacationing in Mexico with her ex-boyfriend, Jason Bleick, and their son, Arthur, ET Online reported
They posted photos of their trip on their Instagram accounts.
